We had the most wonderful time at the 'Gimme Shelter' from start to finish! The accommodation was as described, and looked as beautiful in person as it did in the pictures! We absolutely loved the open plan feel of the house, with great facilities and wonderful bedrooms! (I honestly thin the beds were the comfiest I have slept in, and made me want to change my own when we left!!)
The location could not have been better either, we are a short walk from the front at St Ives, but felt like we were in a very peaceful and calm surrounding when we returned back to the house. Also, we loved all of the amazing little features, like the tap outside for washing the sand from your feet, and the hidden bathroom downstairs! Such a wonderful renovation achieved on the property.
Claire was an excellent host, who I would thoroughly recommend, and we would definitely book with her again!!

Our week stay in this stunning house was simply perfect. Five adults and one small child stayed within the home and it was the perfect size for us all. The house was situated right near the main town which consists of bars, restaurants, shops and beaches which all were in walking distance from the house. The town was simply stunning and with amazing views.

Absolutely beautiful home, a very impressive renovation! We had the most wonderful stay - the house had everything we needed and more. Very helpful and responsive communication with Claire. Wonderful location, quiet street yet a short walk to the hustle and bustle. Would love to stay again!

Gimmie Shelter is a fantastic place to stay in St Ives. It’s centrally located but not too close to be loud. It’s decorated beautifully and considerately and the house is full of thoughtful touches. We loved our stay and hope to return
